    What does Florentine painting of the 15th C tell us about the interests and attitudes of patrons? Please answer with reference to specific works and examples. Commissions for art were organised very differently than is usual in the 21st Century. The Patron took a major role in the design and execution of the art and was considered the real initiator. Indeed “15thC patrons were not passive connoisseurs: they were active consumers “(Hollingsworth1994) In the 15th C the patron was seen as the creator of the project and he would therefore want to control its final appearance.

The 1820s and 1830s signalized the urging need of Italy to change – people missed the partial freedom that Napoleon gave them and wanted to participate in governing, which was impossible as
